I was in the Olathe Public School system for most of my primary education career. Of course there are many different teachers, faculty and experiences I had, so it is hard to review all of them. But in general, I had a great experience. All the facilities were very well kept. The administration in each school I attended were genuinely invested in the betterment of their schools and students. The schools were actively trying to improve any and all issues that arose. Most of the teachers I had were also committed to my education. I can truly say that throughout my whole career in Olathe Public schools I had only one or two teachers that I did not like. I also felt that there were always resources available for the student body to help with any problems they had. The counselors and social workers did a great job of making their presence known and encouraging students to seek help. Not only were the staff great but, the school sprit was off the charts. Every school has great school pride.

My child has attended the Olathe Schools since she started 4th grade at Regency Place Elementary, California Trail and Olathe North. The teachers, staff, custodians have all been expectational, we loved from Arizona for a better school district and we were not disappointed.
Thank you for a great education!
My experience in the Olathe Public Schools district over the past three and a half years has been very positive. I, personally, have never had a teacher who isn't fully invested in every one of their students, they all want the best for us. I have had the opportunity to be on my school's dance team for all four years, and it truly has been amazing. Representing my school at various competitions, locally and nationally, cheering on all times on the sidelines, and being a part of something amazing has been the best part of my high school career. The students at my school have, for the most part, always been encouraging to others rather than tearing people down. The Olathe Public Schools district is great for students to grow up in.
